Would you give your robot the car keys?

Google is upset that California requires all driverless cars to have a licensed driver behind the wheels at all times. Is automation being pushed too far? It’s not the fear of robots run amok and taking control of the universe, even though scientists are pondering about creating “good robots” (hint: those that won’t take away your job). And yet, Paul English, co-founder of travel website Kayak, often took calls from frustrated customers. He admits he often did a better job than the website. Many of us who grapple with automated services probably feel the same. But technology has opened up so many new opportunities: which is why 72% of Millennials would like be their own bosses. The Internet makes it feasible and that’s not a job –it’s a lifestyle.
